In 2016, Country Feeling Holidays celebrates 07 years of existence in the tourism industry as an inbound agent and they have initiated so many esteemed projects to celebrate this remarkable success. One of most respected projects was the “Excellence Awards 2016 for CFH Tour Guides” held on 29th of Oct’16 at their Moratuwa office with the presence of Managing Director & CEO Mr. Dilshan de Silva, Operations Director Mrs. Himalika de Silva & rest of the directors as well as staff.
On this day, they recognized the excellent services of 02 tour guides; Mr Ajith Premaratne & Mr. Dayaratne as well as Mr Arosha Wijesekara who is an escort, a professional tour guide to be. Selection was a very tough call since the organization has a very talented & professional team of French speaking tour guides working for them since years, however the decision was presented after many thorough analysis on their performances during 2013 to 2016. This ceremony appreciated the genuine hard work & added more value to their dedication as well as passion for the job. Mrs Amitha Dissanayake who is now enjoying her retirement, a pioneer in this profession, was also recognized during a function at a latter date for her extraordinary loyal contribution to the organization. Country Feeling Holidays mainly handles customers travelling from France with numerous well-established regular operations with a carefully selected team of guides & accompaniers.
It was a very unique mission appreciating the dedicated services of these individuals with a prestigious award & a cash prize of LKR 50,000 each. Mrs. Dissanayake was awarded with a special medical scheme of LKR 7,000 per month for a period of 12 months. CFH set the right example to the industry that tour guides play a vital role & the right individuals should be well taken care of honouring their professional efforts. Award ceremony concluded serving the invitees with a cocktail party that made the evening a wonderful moment of celebrations to everyone.
